. >> i believe mitt romney wants to be president of all of the united states. this week we learned mitt romney wants to be president of half of the united states. if mitt romney were president, he weent waste time worrying about the 47% of americans who he believes are victims, who romney believes are unwilling to take personal responsibility and those are his words, madam president, not mine. he'll only worry about how the other half lives, i guess. that's what mitt romney told a group of wealthy donor at a closed door fundraiser in florida a month or so ago. but it turns out it wasn't closed. someone videotaped every word he said to his wealthy donors. but this is among other things what he said and this is a quote. "there are 47% who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it." mitt romney said his job as president would not be to, "worry about those people." but half of americans are those people. he went on to sa

[cheers and applause] but none of the things i've mentioned are the reasons i married john edwards. i married him because he was the single most optimistic person that i have ever known. he knew there was a brighter day ahead even as he swept the floors in the cotton mill as a high school student. he knew if he worked hard enough, he could be the first in his family to go to college. he knew that he could outwork and outtough any battalion of lawyers to find justice. and he c
across the muslim world and delivering a stern warning to iran saying the united states will do what it must do to prevent tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. we're going to have reaction to the president's u.n. address coming up in just a moment. first though, brand new stories and breaking news. >> the deadly west nile virus outbreak across our country is now getting worse. with one state hit very hard, the new efforts to stop the virus right in its tracks. >>> wild weather killer floods and mudslides are forcing more than a million folks out of their homes. we're live with that story. >>> plus a new first for the mars rover as its robotic arm reaches out to touch a huge rock on the planet. now the rover on the move again. where it is headed next and why the trip is making history. it is all "happening now.". jamie: first back to our top story, violence in the middle east is centering in the gathering of the united nations general assembly. i'm jamie colby in for jenna lee. jon: the president warning iran that the u.s. will quote, do what we must to prevent the rogue nation fro
when you're president of the united states. but if there were a word cloud about this speech, the word choice would have been up there a million times. what the president needed to do, and they're hammering it. this is not delicate. they want this election to be a choice between two visions for the country. by the way, i'm the more experienced guy in foreign policy. a lot of osama bin laden tonight. >> there were two great quotes. one was john kerry. ask bin laden if he's better off than four years ago. and joe biden, the familiar trump sky, bin laden dead, general motors alive. the auto industry, they're hammering this now, john. they're going after that crowd so they can hit michigan, ohio, the workers, the car people. >> look, it's an overstatement to say you had a three-day convention and it was about two states. but the president understands the map. if he can keep michigan, and win ohio, which is a toss-up right now, it's almost impossible for governor romney to win when you do the piece by piece 270 electoral map. so what is the criticisms of the president, that he's not fightin
states citizens should not be denied by the united states. the issue are they putting roadblocks to get more voter suppression to, to make the process more difficult? if there was supposed to be a period of public comment, why didn't the secretary of state do that? >> heather: is that the issue to have the right to vote? >> here the voter suppression that i'm concerned with. i'm concerned about the suppression of my vote and your vote, of every single voted that is legitimate vote is being tampered down by illegal votes. there are thousands being cast all the the time and it doesn't take that many illegal votes to sway an election. >> i love you dearly but the fact there are thousands and thousands of illegal votes is absolutely non-proven. >> heather: that is not. have you not seen our series right here on fox done by our own eric shawn weekly talking about the issue. >> i don't mean to intererupted but in michigan there is a study that has proven there was 1400 dead people that voted and hundred illegal felons that voted in the last few elections in michigan alone. voters in florida t
for this is the books are conceived as a history of the united states sort of as told through biographies and i was looking for a woman subject for one of these and in fact i found one but my publisher wouldn't let me do it. can you guess what woman i was looking for and found? eleanor roosevelt. i mean, just the fact that it's a very short list of women who played a large role in american public life on whom i can hang a tale of four or five decades of american history. women have had of course their roles in private life but it is in the nature of private life it usually doesn't survive in the historical record. why did people start saving the letters of eleanor roosevelt? because she was important. do your correspondence save your letters that you write to them and then do they deposit them in the local historical society? well, maybe, and if they do you will become, can i use my words adviseably, here, you will become literally immortal. you will become immortal in letters because future historians will find those letters. they will say ah, that is what life was like at the beginning of the
in the united states, but done in france which is a modern labor market where i think there are some lessons. the code-talkers actually convinced the french government to do something i hope we can convince our -- co-authors actually convince the french government to do something i hope we can convince our government to do, which is to experiment with widespread unemployment services programs and look at what the effects on the labor market are not just by randomizing an individual having access to the program, but breaking france up into different geographic areas of labor markets and providing 100% of the people access in some areas, in some areas , in some areas 55%, some areas 25%. if you do that randomly, on average, if you're in an area where a lot of other people use this program, does that have a negative effect on you? what they found is in tight labor markets, basically the programs really helped people get into jobs more quickly. when the labor market is weak, is largely a game of musical chairs. one person getting a job makes another person have a more difficult time. thinking ab

[cheers and applause] my family's story isn't special. but special is the america that makes our story possible. ours is a nation like no other, a place for great journeys to be made in a single generation no matter who you are or where you come from the path is always forward. america didn't become the land of opportunity by accident. my grandmother's generation and generations before always saw beyond the horizons of their own lives and their own circumstances. they believed that opportunity created today would lead to prosperity tomorrow. that's the country they envisioned and that's the country they helped build. the roads and bridges they built, the schools and universities they created, the rights they fought for and won. these opened the doors to a decent job, a secure retirement, the chance for your children to do better than you did. and that's the middle class, the engine of our economic growth. with hard work, everybody ought to be able to get there and with hard work everybody ought to be able to stay there. and go beyond. the dream of ra
of the united states, you can get in touch with us via social media, twitter, and the address there # csspan wa. the facebook.com/c-span or journal@c-span.org. this is an editorial, a piece in "the washington post" with the headline -- "after the party is over." he's talking about what he saw in the republican convention. he says conventions can be memorable events. they're known to energize the party faithful. they can convert never heard-of, barack obama into celebrities. modern day political conventions produce a steady stream of informercial, rather, during primetime all without paying for coverage. conventions have their pitfalls. these affairs have, on occasion, slipped off message, producing sometimes unanticipated adverse events. the violent clashes between police and protesters at the 1968 democratic convention nearly overshadowed the political rough housing on the convention floor. word of this week's incident, rather, in tampa in which two republican guests reportedly threw peanuts at a black cnn camerawoman saying, quote, this is how we feed animals is spreading like wild fire among

there was a bill in the united states senate. and what it would do is extend tax cuts for 98% of the families here in massachusetts and 97% of small businesses. and senator brown voted no. now why did he vote no? because they weren't enough tax breaks for the top 2% and the top 3%. for me this is just an example of whose side you stand on. are you holding out? are you hanging in there for the top 2%? are eager to fight for working people. >> excuse me. with all due respect, you're misrepresenting my record. and the only person in this race he was hurt in the middle class wants to raise taxes as professor warren. she would not have supported president obama's compromise bill that not only kept taxes low for everybody for the last two years, but also take care of an employment benefits. she would not have supported that because the fee increases -- sorry, the fact we didn't tax more a high income earners. so she would've been about taxing one taxpayer middle-class people. this is about 700,000 jobs. i did make those numbers up, but 3.4 trillion are all things you have said. he won another million in

to vote for the president of the united states? that is not in the constitution. another one, where in the constitution is the education department? where in the constitution is the energy department? there are several instances similar to that. host: nancy writes -- arlington, virginia, philip, an independent scholar. what's your message to congress? caller: are we a reflection, the people of congress? we keep putting them in there. when people start to become enlightened again, where we might go. you have to take some responsibility for the mess we are in, the people. you can blame congress, but we don't want to look in the mirror at ourselves. the point i'm trying to make is our country is very divided right now. it's obvious. the wealthy, the middle, the poor, black, white, hispanic, all doing a pretty bad. we have to come together to fight the real issues that our country is facing. of course the economy is one. and to stay out of foreign entanglements, like barack obama is doing, unlike the bush administration. a fm radio and other stations are bent on negative comments about
of the united states. so that if they don't do so well, the expectations game is a little lower. reminds me when al gore was debating george w. bush in 2000, al gore, the vice president of the united states, was seen as a great debate, george w. bush not so much. but then al gore, you know, had some fumbles and in terms of the sighing he did and a lot of people were paying attention to that. and bush all of a sudden looked a whole lot better. these debates can be significant for relatively trivial things like that, if, for example, and you remember when the first president bush, george h.w. bush, you know, at one of the presidential debates started looking at his watch and it looked like he was ready to move on. let's get out of here, already. that hurt him, i think, in his re-election bid against bill clinton back in 1992. it is part of the game. it is what goes on. but i think these debates are going to be really, really important for that, 6%, 7%, 8% who are legitimately undecided or switchable, haven't completely made up their minds. they're going to be watching the three presidential debate
of the island and here in the united states, the east coast is not out of play either. so let's get right to alexandra steel. she is at cnn hurricane headquarters. what can you tell us? >> it's not as bad as it could be for bermuda. bermuda sees hurricanes about three every ten years and it's moving farther east than we'd seen it before. this is the atlantic. we do have two hurricanes at play. there's leslie. here is michael. this is a category 2, it is small, tight, powerful. 105-mile-an-hour winds. good news, won't affect anyone, won't affect land. so with that, our attention turns to leslie. now, right now it's category 1, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles an hour. what's happened is it has sat over the same space, kind of the cold water for the last 18 hours or so. so we have not seen any intensification. so that is the good news. here is the projected path. now, you can see here is bermuda right now, it's about 430 miles south/southeast of bermuda, expected to make the past farther east than earlier thought sunday morning. so here are the impacts. this area east of haley fax cou ha
here in the united states of america. >> the problem with saying that these are good jobs is the facts don't seem to support it. some of of the jobs were temporary and paid for by the stimulus or perhaps census work or that sort of thing. so they did not last. and some of the jobs are not worth the jobs that we lost. a variety of studies say we lost more middle to upper income jobs an gained more lower level jobs. the simple truth is that the numbers may be technically correct in some of the claims, but when you look at all of the details, there is an awful lot more that needs to be seen. this is tom foreman, charlotte. >>> the b.t. founder bob johnson was not a fn of president obama four years ago, so what has actually changed? we will talk to him live in a moment. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ there's another way to help
